Well, when I started to think about preparing clothes for my baby boy, I knew that I would love to have this part of the closet for hanging clothes (most of my girlfriends had only drawers for their babies, and I guess that's ok, but I don't think that I could keep it neat).
I liked so many ideas on Pinterest of how to organize kids closet. And, here is what came out from all that scrolling!
I have tutorial for you.
Here are photos with instructions, but to be honest, I feel a little bit silly when I'm explaining obvious things. Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt in your powers of deduction, but to keep it clear and simple, I'm going to make more tutorial steps in future.
The point is that I feel happy when I open his closet. And, when I have something handmade (anywhere) I'm happy!
Come back next Monday to see what's going to make me happy then!
Croatia has many customs that should stay alive for next generations. One of those customs is this one:
In the eve of Palm Sunday (we call it - in my translation - Flower Sunday) we put flowers in water and that water is placed on our windows and balconies. During the night, angels will come and bless this water, so in the morning we will wash our faces with it.
There are so many nice customs for Christmas and Easter time in our culture. It would be shame if we forget them...
While I was pregnant I had time to prepare some handmade things for my baby. This is one of the simplest. It took me about an half an hour. And I think that my baby boy is more comfortable in his pram with this cushion. Here we have photos for tutorial if you're interested how could you DIY:
I took nice material 70 cm x 75 cm (that's about 27 x 30 in inches)
On this photo it is folded in half. I forgot to write on photo that you have to sew this short edge on top, as well. That's how you're going to get one open side and 3 closed ones.
Turn it inside out.
I've put batting (vatelin) inside. And it looked too thin so I've put two layers of batting.
And finally, I've sewn pad (pillow, cushion) like on the photo so batting won't "escape", and everything is going to be on it's place after washing.
